Grandma's Christmas Gift Set

Hi, everyone! THREE more days.....



Here's a gift set I made for my Grandma. For her Christmas gift, I wanted to make her some monogrammed stationery to go with her favorite perfume. As luck would have it, I had some Au Chocolat paper I had been hoarding, and it is a perfect match! I made twelve cards, six of each design, and stamped the envelopes to coordinate. Also as luck would have it, Ballet Blue is a perfect match to the blue border on the perfume label. All stamps and the clear box are from Papertrey Ink.

This project doesn't have lots of layers or fancy techniques, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. That's one of the things I love about papercrafting: you can take just a few supplies and create something that is custom-made and beautiful. And, it comes from the heart. That's why we do what we do, right? :)

I'm taking a few days off from stamping and blogging so I can enjoy them with family. I want to wish all of you a happy and blessed Christmas. May Christ's birth bring joy and peace to you and your families. I'll see you all next week. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
